Multi-select and add data from ArcCatalog pane from within ArcMap

Idea created by DarkCanuck on Dec 2, 2013
    This may already be suggested in another idea but be called something different.

    Within ArcMap, you have the ability to open ArcCatalog in a new pane. However, within this new ArcCatalog pane, it's is currently not possible to select multiple feature classes/files/rasters/tables and drag them into ArcMap. This would be beneficial for adding multiple orthos, etc. to ArcMap. 

    A workaround is to use the Add Data button, or open the ArcCatalog application and drag/drop from there.
